Oracle database connection using Visual Studio 2005 and .Net 2.0 framework

My connection string is in my web config file, generated when I added a sql data source.  I can go under tools and connect to database and compare the connection string there to the one in web config and they are the same but when I try to view my page which contains a gridview I get a database connection error saying  "Keyword not supported: 'unicode'."  When I remove the unicode=true parameter from the connection string then I get an error message about trying to connect to sql server.  Could someone please give me a clue on how to go about solving this?  Thank you in advance!

I am no expert on Oracle, but I've managed to connect to Oracle in the past, using Can't find the connection string I used then though.

But a good source for connection string syntaxes can be found here:

Try experimenting with different formats/syntaxes that you find on this page.

Thanks for your message, I found out prior to your message that I needed to use an Oracle Data Provider directly from Oracle rather than the one included in the .net 2.0 framework.

Thank you.
